Fedora :: YUM Install Vs Compile ... Which Is Better?

Jun 29, 2010

I have been playing around with linux for a bit ... but i am getting to the point where i would like to know what is actually happening to the system .

Scenario ... I would like to install Mozilla Thunderbird On mozilla thunderbird website, current version is 3.1

However, when i run 'yum search thunderbird' i get a version 3.0.5.xxx

Why is repository not up to date?

So is it better to install through YUM or should i download the source and compile it?

If i compile it, will the YUM keep track of it if an update is made?

If compiled, how can i get it so it appears in the menu system (alacarte?)

Is it possible to extract and install source files through YUM (so it can keep track of the package)?

Looking through the FAQ at kernelnewbies, states to extract the kernel to a Linux directory, in usr/src, which also doesn't exist.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Install GCC To Compile Java On The Server Using Command Line

Feb 21, 2011

I'm using a webhosting server running CentOS, and I'm trying to install GCC to compile Java on the server. Since I'm new to Linux and don't have root privileges, I'm having trouble installing this. I need to install this using command-line. I don't know if I should compile from source (which I downloaded off the "gcc.gnu.org" website) or if I need to install a binary or something. Can I even install anything without root privileges?

Fedora :: Compile From Source - Install Buddi Budget Manager And The ./configure Command Doesn’t Work

Nov 24, 2009

Ive been using linux for a few months now and every now and again i come accross a program that doesnt have a rpm package but says that it can be installed on Fedora using source. I'm familiar with build essentials and the following commands:-

tar xzvf package.tar.gz
cd package
make install

but from what i have read fedora uses a differnet compiler. I'm trying to install Buddi budget manager and the ./configure command doesnt work, which im guessing is because it doesnt have a configure file? Can anyone confirm how to compile from source and whether there are any tutorials specific to fedora.

OpenSUSE Install :: Install A Recent Kernel And Then Compile Some Variations?

Jan 25, 2011

I'm running 11.2 with standard repositories (plus packman). I want to install a recent kernel and then compile some variations of it (to investigate a hardware problem).

So I took these steps:

(1) add the 11.2 Kernel:/HEAD repository
(2) enable multiversion in zypp.conf
(3) use YaST software management to select the kernel development pattern

Note that at the moment, the standard 11.2 kernel ( is in use and I have not selected any packages from HEAD. But it has installed 2.6.37-41.1 versions of all the kernel packages I didn't already have (source & docs etc) instead of the 2.6.31 versions. /usr/src/linux symlinks to linux-2.6.37-41 instead of to a directory for the running kernel!

(1) it should have loaded the packages corresponding to the running kernel
(2) it's not supposed to switch repositories

General :: Compile And Install Application From Command Line?

Sep 21, 2010

I am going to compile and install my first linux application from the command line. The program is the port scanner program NMAP, and I am looking at the documentation to learn how to do it. I saw this thread [URL], and I just want to make sure I understand what it is I'm doing.

bzip2 -cd nmap-5.35DC1.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
cd nmap-5.35DC1
su root
make install

"bzip2 -cd nmap-5.35DC1.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -"
Here I am calling the bzip2 program to work with a specified file. look for the file nmap-5.35DC1.tar.bz2 in the current diretory (-cd) and to pipe (redirect) something, this is where I get lost, I think. And I know what x & v mean but not f, or what that has to do with the previous commands.

cd nmap-5.35DC1
Chage to the named directory.
I assume this is a command?
Builds an executable
su root
make install
not sure what the difference is between this and the above.

Slackware :: Can't Compile And/or Install Guarddog On 13.1_x64 Multilib

I just installed Slack 13.1 x64 on my laptop and set up multilib per Alien Bob's wiki. I even successfully compiled and installed grub afterwards. But, am having big problems trying to compile or install guarddog. On my 1st try, I downloaded guarddog from Slackbuilds and replaced the SlackBuild script with this one which is off a thread in this forum:


It **appears** to compile, but, no .tgz package is made. I have folders and files under /tmp/SBo.

So, then I went back to SlackBuilds and downloaded this, original, 12.2 SlackBuild file:
